TEDxSydney memory tutorials

TEDxSydney

Hi everyone. I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything but that’s because I’ve been busy with some very exciting projects. I’ll have more to share on these very soon but in the meanwhile, here is some footage from my involvement in the 2015 TEDxSydney event, along with illustrated tutorials on the Method of Loci and the Substitute Word Method. I teamed up with the Post-it brand to put on some workshops and to deliver a live demonstration of memory techniques at the Sydney opera house.

If you find these interesting and want to dig a little deeper, I discuss in greater details how to combine these two techniques for foreign language learning here.

One final note: If you haven’t done so already, please be sure to follow me on my new public Facebook page here for almost daily material on improving memory and creativity. I can also be found on Twitter at @DanielKilov

From the Archives: Daniel Kilov and Tansel Ali on ABC’s HUNGRY BEAST

Many of you enjoyed my interview with Tansel Ali, the 3x Australian Memory Champion and human phone book. Did you know that Tansel and I have been good friends for many years? In fact, it was Tansel who first taught me memory techniques. Below is a clip from back when I’d only just started training with Tansel. Enjoy!

The Secret of Memory

What do Aristotle, Aquinas, Descartes, Bacon and Mark Twain all have in common? Watch my newest talk from TEDxManly to find out. In addition, I share a technique for high speed language learning.

This talk was wonderfully illustrated by Gavin Blake and I have included his artwork below:

Memory Athletics: Daniel Kilov at TEDxCanberra

Here it is; I’ve finally managed to get around to posting my talk from TEDxCanberra. This was one of the most exciting moments of my memory career. It was a phenomenal event and I think my talk came out very nicely too.

The talk itself was also illustrated by an audience member:
